Hi,

I don't mean to impose on the forum but I do need help with this issue that was resolved before but has come up again. I am referring to the thread at How to open Wordfast TXML with Trados Studio? that was started in 2010.

I added the following question 2 days ago but it has not received a response and I am wondering if it has been seen by anybody. So here it goes again with hopes that someone will pick it up. Thanks!

Hi,

Not sure since when but I am unable to translate XML files in Studio 2015 while before this worked just fine.

When I add an XML file to the project wizard it is considered a reference file instead of a translatable file.

I tried the Open Exchange plugin for Wordfast but no luck.

I also looked fot the Sdl.FileType.TXML.sdlplugin file; the path is there but the file is not.

Finally, I tried to create a txml file type myself based on the instructions of Paul Filkin. Still, no luck. All of these have worked in the past so I don't know what's going on. I use Studio 2015 on a Windows 10 machine.

Thanks,

Rutger

Check file types Jun 10

Under options > File types to make sure your xml types are checked. In the left column you can click the type and expand settings. I am not an expert with these settings, but that's where I would start - Studio should be able to handle these.

This might also help:

Installing plugin Jun 10

Thanks both!

You're right, Natalie, the "File Type Definition for Wordfast TXML" plugin is not listed under the installed plugins even though I downloaded and installed it twice now. It's a matter of clicking on the plugin file, right? A dialogue came up asking if a Studio handler should install it. I said yes, and then nothing much happened. It's not listed under 'Additional file types exist'.

As for the xml file types under Options, Lianne, they are all checked...

Hello Rutger,

I stumbled upond this page, could this help (if you haven't seen it yet?)? http://translationtherapy.com/tents-interoperability/

It seems that MemoQ natively runs txml, after loading the txml, getting the bilingual file from there (memoQ mqxliff) and load it into SDL (or not if you have Memo-Q) could be an option maybe, if you're willing to (more steps... ).

My bests

Plugin won't install Jun 10

Thanks Fi2, but the plugin won't install. I think I can narrow it down to that problem. After I hit the downloaded file, it is not listed under plugins, nor is the file type listed under Options or under Additional file types exist.
I think my best bet now is to reinstall Studio and see if that changes anything.

Thanks!

Why reinstalling Studio because of a plugin? Jun 10

Close Studio.
Locate the file Sdl.FileType.TXML.sdlplugin

Copy it to c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\14\Plugins\Packages\
[Note: instead of 14 put your actual Studio version number, e.g. 11]

Start Studio, and the plugin will be unpacked.

Go to File > options and you will find a link in the filetypes that says additional filetypes exist.
Click on that and select the filetype.

Which version number? Jun 10

Hi Natalie,

I had already uninstalled Studio when I read your message. It is now reinstalled, and I have Studio 2015; however there is no version 15 in the folder C:\Users\RHCdG\AppData\Local\SDL\SDL Trados Studio. There are 3 folders there, 10, 12, and 12.0.0.0. Can you tell me where I should drop the plugin?

Thanks,
Rutger

Folder 12 is for Studio 2015. Folder 14 would be for 2017.

Almost there... Jun 11

Thanks, Lianne!

I need to ask you to be more specific though, because I see there are folders within the /12 folder: ../Plugins and then either ../../Packages or ../../Unpacked.

Thanks!

Rutger

packages Jun 11

... as Natalie said...
Makes sense: you move the package, not the unpacked stuff -- just as when you travel....

YES! Jun 11

Finally! This works, I have a translatable txml file... And I figured as much re: packages but I didn't want to mess things up...
Thanks very much, Lianne, and all of you!
Best regards,
Rutger

What's the plugin? Jun 11

Good to hear, Rutger. I just happened to have copied a plugin myself today, the Color Theme from 2015 to 2017.
I rarely translate tmxl's in Studio anymore but I know it works well. What is the plugin that you needed to install for that?

Plugin for handling txml files Jun 11

Hi Lianne,
The plugin is called Sdl.FileType.TXML.sdlplugin. Is this what you're asking?

Thanks Jun 11

I was not aware or don't remember this required a plugin. I thought I was able to open txml's without it, but it has been a while. I downloaded it - just in case.
